The 30 Day Blogging Challenge – Are you up for it?

Hello all..

I would say “Happy Friday” to you but if you run your own business like I do… weekends are never really “weekends”. Not that I’m complaining 🙂

Okay, I have a challenge for you..

As most of us know, an essential part of our online presence is our blogs. Right? And in order to be productive in your blogging, you need to follow the “C.C.C.” rule:

Constantly Create Content”

Hey, that’s not bad considering I just made that up now. lol

Seriously though, the content you create on your blog is not only important for your blog traffic, it’s also a very important part of your list building as well. Yes, yes it is.

You always need to be providing value to your list, and you blog content is an incredibly easy way to deliver it. As many of you know, most emails I send out will point you to my blog to get the complete message. Very rarely do I deliver a complete email message in an email (go figure) – I always give them the “gist” of it, then say “go here to get the rest..” and off they go to my blog. You can say so much more on a blog than you can in an email, and you can deliver it better, brand yourself, get feedback, and really put your personality into your message.

Right, so here’s your challenge

In my opinion, you should be delivering content to your list – via your blog – 3-5 times per week.. MINIMUM. And if you want to put numbers to it, focus about 30% of it on marketing a product, the rest is just valuable content.

My challenge is for you to create 5 blog posts per week for the next 30 days.

Blog posts that are relevent to whatever you’re currently marketing of course. 5 posts per week for a month is 20 blog posts in total. Sounds like a lot but really all we’re talking about is 1 hour per day for 5 out of 7 days.

Note: If you’re feeling particularly creative you could do all 5 in one day, then all you have to do is post them on the approprate days. It’s up to you.

Honestly that’s not a lot of time, but blogs last forever so what you’re doing is creating content that you can use over and over again to provide value to your list.

What do you think? Can you do it? Will you do it? … or will you let it go, once again searching for an “easier way”?

As always, it’s up to you of course..

Oh and by the way, I’m challenging myself to do this as well. It’s not easy when you have other businesses to run but I’m up for it.

Let me know if you do this and I’d be happy to come over and comment or give suggestions..

So.. Happy Friday! Hit me up on Facebook if you like:

P.S. I have a new product coming out soon that will show you step by step how to build your list by 100-500 new (high quality) leads per week… for $0.00 using solo ads. Sound good?

How to Get an Actual Response from Your Leads and Recruit Using Email

Hello all..

This is probably one of the most important “make or break” points of internet marketing. The reason I say that is because most people have no idea how to follow up with their leads correctly, and it’s why they fail most of the time.

Here’s the scenario..

Through your marketing you receive an email indicating that someone has entered their information into one of your lead capture forms. In other words, you just generated a lead..

So what do you do now? Well, my immediate advice would be to call them, but let’s assume in this case your new lead hasn’t entered in their phone number. You just have an email address and a name.

Your only option is to reply and email them back.

This is where you either pass or fail.

Most of the time, the new marketer (the ‘rookie’) will send an email to their new lead with the full intention of getting a sale or a signup out of them. Some generic sounding email that includes their affiliate link: “Sign up now!”

That action is, in a word, wrong.. and pretty useless.

What I do, and what most experienced marketers will do, is email the lead immediately WITHOUT ANY intention of making a sale or getting a signup. Weird, huh?

The whole point of this email is NOT to make a sale, but to start a conversation with the lead and to further qualify this prospect as well. You want INTERACTION, you want to open a line of communication with them on a personal level.

The main reasons for your email is to:

  1.  Get interaction from your prospect
  2. Start a conversation with your prospect
  3. Begin to qualify the prospect as a business partner
  4. Lead to further conversation via phone or Skype..

Note I said on a ‘personal’ level. If your email looks like an automated message, your lead will treat it like an automated message – they’ll probably ignore it. That means if you just send them a signup link, it looks fake, and you’ll get nothing from them.

Make it conversational. Ask questions. Comment on what you already know about them. Be friendly 🙂 You will have NO idea whether this personal will be a good fit for your business if you don’t ask questions.

Here’s a hint: If you have their IP address (usually included when they subscribe), you can get a basic knowledge of where they live by typing in their IP address at this site:

If you know approximately where they live through their IP address, it’s much easier to start a ‘personal’ conversation with them: “Hi Joe, I notice that you live in Texas. Are you in the Houston area? My wife’s family is from there and we’re thinking of heading that way this summer, any tips on what to see while we’re there..? etc..”

The key here is to make sure your email does NOT sound like an automated followup. Put it this way, if your emails all sounded like generic autoresponder messages, I would choose to NOT do business with you. If you can’t connect with me as a professional, I will not connect with you.

That said, if you do it right, your prospects will see you as someone they want to work with.

Let the conversation continue below if you have any comments..

LeadSkimmer is Now the BEST Way to Generate Leads for your Business. Period.

LeadSkimmer Stats



Here’s the deal. If you want an incredibly fast way to increase your contact list and make 3X more money, you now have access to it in your NPN backoffice..

Although I haven’t even “officially” launched it yet, LeadSkimmer is already generating leads like crazy for those that are using it.

I released it on Christmas Eve (to a few people that knew about it), and we now have well over 1,000 members already! This thing is going crazy, considering this time of year is NOT the best time (historically) for businesses like ours.

If you are wanting to increase your contact lists, earn more commissions, and build your NPN businesses to a much higher level – you NEED to be part of what’s going on here. It’s really quite amazing..

Lead Skimmer is clearly the best way to generate leads online right now. Why?? Because it works. Period.

Here’s what I’ve heard:

“LeadSkimmer is ROCKING in the traffic exchanges! People can’t help but opt-in to this thing. My list is growing literally by the hour!”

“I placed a couple quick ads to some safelists and my Aweber list has increased by 32 leads so far – within 24 hours!”

“This generates confirmed leads FAST, and I’ve already made money from Premium upgrades, plus I made a sale from the EntryAd you get as a premium member..”

This is a screen capture I grabbed of one of our member’s Lead Skimmer stats after one day…

LeadSkimmer Stats

And the best part??..

As a GlobalNPN DIRECTOR member, you are automatically upgraded to “Premium” status in Lead Skimmer! That means you are automatically qualified to start your own lead lines, you are qualified to start earning unlimited payments of $25.00 in commissions, and YOUR NPN affiliate link will be on your prospects “upgrade page” as an upgrade option – which means it will build your NPN downlines as well!

We have  people upgrading every day, and we have people joining NPN under their sponsor’s as well! Which tells me that LeadSkimmer is doing what it should be doing.

and remember, it’s hasn’t even been officially launched yet – so if being in something “at the right time” is important to you, guess what… 😉

This is your ticket to making money online. If you’re struggling to generate leads – this is your solution. If you’re struggling to make money online – this is your best move.

This is what you need to do – TODAY!:

  1. Upgrade to NPN Director from your NPN backoffice
  2. Join LeadSkimmer for FREE through the link in your NPN backoffice (click on “” in the menu).
  3. Update your LeadSkimmer Username in your NPN backoffice to be upgraded to Premium.
  4. Start promoting your LeadSkimmer affiliate link (you’ll see that in your LeadSkimmer backoffice)

Congratulations! You now have the most powerful marketing funnel (and NPN builder) at your fingertips!

We’ll be officially launching in a few days (still tweaking things in the backoffice), and stay tuned for our first LeadSkimmer webinar early next week!

Thanks all, hope to see your successes with LeadSkimmer / GlobalNPN!

How to get Quality MLM Leads

Hello NPN’ers,

I want to let you in on a little ‘secret method’ I have to making sure that the GlobalNPN referrals I get personally are going to be active and motivated networkers.

I have heard from people all over the online MLM industry that (while they may have no problem generating leads) the leads and referrals that they generate are simply not the ‘right’ people for their business. They get leads, and they convert to paying members, but they don’t produce in their downline and eventually they just drop out. Sound familiar?

I often hear things like, “My referrals never return my emails”, or “My downline isn’t doing anything!”, or “I try to help them but they don’t respond..”, or “I recruited him, never heard from her, and then she just quit without a word!”. I hate hearing stuff like that.

I know it’s frustrating because you’ve just wasted a ton of time (and probably money) recruiting these people and they just don’t work out.

Some people blame the industry for this, and they’re partly correct. It’s true there are millions of people out there that are looking for a “quick buck” and will join anything to give it a shot, even though they have no idea what it takes to succeed in this business. Most of these people need significant “hand-holding” and generally never make any real money. And when I say “hand-holding”, I really mean “time-wasting”. I know that your time as a sponsor is valuable, and trying to get these people going can be a real stress on you and can take you away from supporting your real “active” referrals.

The way most people do their prospecting online is to get as many eyeballs in front of their capture page as possible, which is what you should be doing.. However..

The problem lies in what happens after they’ve generated their leads.

What happens next is some of those leads will upgrade into your GlobalNPN downline in hopes that they’ll make some fast money, without knowing what’s involved. And then the vicious circle begins again with you (as their sponsor) trying to turn these people into network marketers, while they just want to magically get rich without doing anything.

Yes, you make a quick referral commission off these people but you may have figured out that you’re probably going to be back at square one in a month or two after they give up and hop off to the next opportunity they see.

So what the heck do we do about this?

What needs to happen is a qualification process before your leads are introduced to your GlobalNPN links. It’s not a difficult thing to do and it really separates the bad from the good.

There’s nothing wrong with generating as many leads as you can possibly generate, as quickly as you can. The more leads the better. BUT only a few of those leads will be good mlm’ers, and the rest can still be good leads to make money from in other ways. You need to qualify your MLM’ers before you give them GlobalNPN.

Here’s what I do, and it works really well.

First of all I have my own capture page, which offers something for free in turn for their opt-in. This is the top of my marketing funnel.

Now after they opt-in, they get forwarded to the free product they requested, and now they’re in my funnel and I can market to them.

My funnel focuses on generating MLM-specific leads. In other words, my capture page and free product specifically have to do with building an MLM business. That way I know that the people opting in are interested in building their MLM businesses, as opposed to just buying stuff from me.

Inside my funnel I have videos and information on me and what I do, and I also have some other training videos to keep them interested and moving through my funnel.


At some point in my funnel I want to qualify them before I decide to introduce them to my MLM Opportunity (ie. GlobalNPN).

Here’s how I do that..

I give them something to do. I simply give them a task to complete. I basically tell them that before I decide to work with them, I need to know more about them, and I need to know what their goals are – both short term, and long term goals. And I want to know “why” they have those goals, I dig a little deeper than “how much money do you want to make”. ie. they have to justify to me the amount of money they want to make. It can (and should) go beyond the whole money-making aspect as well…

So, before anything goes further, I say “if you want to join me in what I’m doing here, I need you to complete this task”.

Doing this accomplishes a few things..

  1. It engages the prospect.
  2. Here they get to DO something.  People like being told what to do.
  3. It forces the prospect to communicate with me directly.
  4. It creates anticipation in the prospect, they know that I’ll be responding to them directly to either approve or disapprove (ie. they remember me).
  5. It encourages the prospect to be honest and forthcoming with what they want to accomplish.
  6. It shows that I am genuinely interested in knowing more about them, and that I’m not just trying to sell them something.
  7. It ultimately shows whether or not they’re the kind of person I want in my downline.

After doing this, I know that the people that complete my “task”, at the very least, are people that..

  • are willing to communicate
  • probably have some experience
  • can follow instructions
  • take the initiative
  • have specific long-term and short-term goals
  • have good work ethics
  • genuinely WANT to work to succeed.

And remember, if they don’t qualify, they’re still on my list… which means I can still market “other stuff” to them 🙂

Honestly, I believe that if you do the same thing, you will have a lot less difficulty in building your NPN business. You will get quality people in your downlines which will save you TONS of time and money in the long run.

I am currently testing this in NPNDirectorMachine, giving the leads a very quick couple of questions to answer. I am getting lots of responses to it, which is excellent. So.. if you start getting “task results” in your inbox from your NPNDirectorMachine leads, please reply to them RIGHT AWAY – these are the people you want and you need to get in contact with them. I will activate this in the next few days..
